    The room looked brand new. The bathroom was nice and big. The beds were very comfortable. The ocean is right across the road from the hotel. There are a lot of eateries in walking distance. Their complimentary breakfast was decent. The pool looked nice although it was half empty because of it being winter. Stayed here one night and it was great. Check in was smooth.

    The room matches the photos—it was cozy and comfortable and close to the beach.

    The door didn’t close completely, though the locks worked... it not being able to close the door so that it stayed shut without locking it lessened our feeling of safety.
